Our PPS Curriculum

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)

is at the heart of our school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. As a Silver rights-respecting school we not only teach about children’s rights but also model rights and respect in all relationships.  Our belief in “restorative approaches” ensures that every child is listened to. 





At Penclawdd Primary School we believe that every member of the school community is a learner, pupils, staff and parents.  Together we develop as a learning organisation, using information from research, other schools, businesses and the real world to build a culture for improvement.





Across all Areas of Learning and Experience (AoLEs), the application of numeracy, literacy and digital competency is robustly planned for.  Teachers are expected to plan and deliver learning objectives pitched appropriately to the learners needs.  Lessons have success criteria (which also include numeracy, literacy and/or digital competency) to ensure the learners are aware of the particular skills they are looking to develop within that lesson. In addition to literacy, numeracy and digital competence, teachers plan for incidental Welsh and opportunities to address relationships and sexuality education in line with the new CfW.




There is a whole school and NGP cluster approach to well-being enabling pupils to understand their own and others’ emotions.  This is in line with the Health and Well-Being AoLE, and is integrated throughout the school day, and through out the curriculum itself. 







Every opportunity is used to promote our motto...
